Report Wants Jobs Oversight Body

Skill demand shortfalls are likely to emerge in key occupations in the Irish Hospitality industry if action is not taken in the short to medium term, according to a new report from  the Government's Expert Group on Future Skills Needs.
 The establishment of a National Oversight and Advisory Group to oversee the skills development and promotion of the Hospitality sector is a main recommendation of the report.
 Fáilte Ireland welcomed the report. John Mulcahy,Head of Hospitality, said:
'This report underscores the need for more skilled staff within tourism as the industry expands and, in this regard, we look forward to the introduction of a new apprenticeship model by SOLAS, in partnership with the industry, which will add significantly more training places to the 1500 a year currently funded by Fáilte Ireland and should effectively address this issue.
 The research also indicates that staff exiting some sectors of the industry is a contributory factor in the skills shortfall.  It is important therefore that the hospitality sector also implements measures to improve staff retention levels, particularly given the level of State investment in training. We do not only need to recruit skilled staff -  we also need to retain them if we are to fundamentally address the skills shortage in the industry.'
